Steven Gerrard, Jill Scott and Joe Cole will join Channel 4 for its coverage of England’s Euro 2024 qualifiers.
Scott and Cole will be a permanent fixture of the network’s eight England Euro qualifiers throughout 2023.
Former England captain Gerrard will team up with the duo for England’s opening two matches against Italy on Thursday (23 March) and Ukraine on Sunday (26 March).
Channel 4’s Chief Content Officer Ian Katz said: “This will be England’s first match since the devastating defeat against France and they’ll face an Italy side with a point to prove having missed out on the World Cup.
“It’s a crucial opening match and I’m thrilled viewers will have the insight of Steven Gerrard, Jill Scott and Joe Cole who all know exactly the kind of pressure Harry Kane and the team will be under.”
Channel 4 has live coverage all of England’s UEFA 2024 Euro qualifying matches and two friendlies to be played this year. It also has the rights to four England matches in 2024 (Euro qualifiers or friendless depending qualification).
